There was a time in my life when I was a pizza delivery guy. I have to admit, I had a lot of fun doing it, and wholeheartedly recommend it.
It’s always nice to see people smile when they open the door (because you have the food), and you can learn a lot about people when you stand in the doorway for two minutes during a pizza transaction. Sometimes you get invited to partake in events and activities that probably shouldn’t be mentioned here, other times you hear cheering and high-fiving from the other room when the person who answers the door yells “Pizza is here!”
There are a few drawbacks though.
Sometimes folks complain, other times folks don’t tip, but it’s all part of the job. The thing that is inescapable is this: your vehicle always smells like pizza. Honestly, for the first couple of nights, you want to devour everyone’s supper when you get it in your car. After a week or so, that hot pizza smell has either a zero effect, or negative affect on your hunger level and desire to eat pizza.
I am super surprised to see this footage of a pizza delivery driver ravaging a customers order in Surrey. The concierge in the building and saw the driver picking toppings off the order on the security camera, and alerted the tenant.
The driver was relieved of his duties and have since reached out to the customer to apologize. Make sure you check your order at the door … and please tip your driver.
